Floral Dress at El Vez

Like many women who came of age during the Sex and the City era, I draw inspiration from the outfits that Carrie and the girls wore. Certain selections from the late 90s / early 2000s wardrobes seems so timeless. While few of the get-ups trigger “What was Pat (Field, the legendary costume designer) thinking?”, I romanticize Calvin Klein minimalism, oversized flower pins, and everything that Charlotte wore.

This post is not about Charlotte, however; this post is about that primary colored Marimekko sundress Carrie wore in Ring A Ding Ding. I won’t get into plot points here, save for that Carrie found herself in a financial cul-de-sac and was rejected for a home loan while wearing dress in the above photo.

J.Crew released this dress (and the sister skirt) earlier this summer and despite the negative circumstance Carrie found herself in when she was in the designer doppelganger version, I had to have the J.Crew iteration. Rather than wearing it to request a home loan like Carrie, I wore it to El Vez to consume some guacamole and blood orange margaritas – much better circumstances indeed.
